I feel for my people. That's not right all the money's going to wars and building more homes when people are suffering from wanting to eat and can not afford food but can't because prices are sky high. What a world we live in today.

let the natural order of things progress in that country, they have no natural resources, millions of diseased people, crime and corruption. sorta like any major city world wide where these low class people populate, mother nature
and civil unrest will thin out the horde.

The situation in Haiti is one that many American are simply unaware of. With a large Haitian population in South Florida it stands to reason that you report on it daily. I'm an Illinois resident who visits Haiti regularly. Friends of ours serve as missionaries in Port-au-Prince and Les Cayes. Your stories help us in our efforts to raise awareness and finacal support for these ministries. I'm only sorry that you have so much sadness to report. It never ceases to amaze me that this situation is unfolding right in our back yard.

There is danger of world wide famine due to inflation. You can lay the blame for this situation on the environmentalists. Agricultural land is being used to produce ethanol instead of food. Corn, rice and other foodstuffs are also being directly converted into fuel. Now go out and hug a tree you i.d.i.o.t.s.

Anyone who said that we should deport all immigrants should truly rethink that statement. With the exception of the NATIVE americans, we are all illegal immigrants...idiots.
Each and everyone of us came from somewhere, so get off your damn high horse and learn your history.

Missionaries, churches. Everyone wants money. It goes thru so many gateways and people nobody ever gets it. We send money and get nothing but crap in return. Then you all live here in projects which we pay for for being a loafer.
